  1. Wow. The colors in this shot are so vibrant! The green is SO green and the red dirt road stands out because of it. And then the big blue sky. AWESOME !

    This is what the Lakotas refer to as the “red road”…. isn’t it beautiful?? I lived in Custer SD for a couple summers working and the roads were all this color.

    Red Rocks Colorado. You are on your way for sure. Red clay, red roads. I can say I have been there and done that. I love your road shots. I love all your pictures. You have a talent and those of us following…appreciate you taking us with you. Watch them Rattlesnakes…..

    Such a green treeless landscape. I’ve never seen such LARGE grassy areas with no trees. I’ve seen areas with no trees, but none with so much green grass. I love the little hill lumps.

      What is the yellow flowery stuff?

      • Candice in Alabama says:

        Oh! I just digested the title – well you haven’t been down South. Plenty of red clay roads down this way -but not such pretty green grassy hilly areas. Usually Forest and BRIARS line the sides of Alabama’s red clay roads. I don’t know what the NORTHERN WEST holds for you, but SOUTHERN WEST, you go from green to pretty much everything’s RED once you hit New Mexico.

    Down that red dirt road.
    It’s where I drank my first beer.
    It’s where I found Jesus.

    Good song Brooks & Dunn

    It’s Scorio rock, which is used by alot of farmers as a cheap replacement for gravel, but very hard on tires.

    Sweep and sway. The clouds, the grasses and flowers, the red lane. It’s all just sweeping and swaying. I love this one!!!

  13. Michael in Atlanta says:

    Oh man, Matt. Breathtaking.

  14. Mike in Bismarck says:

    More red lies ahead, the further west in ND you get the more red the roads will become. “Scoria” is the rusty colored rock that paves many country roads in western ND. Burning veins of lignite coal baked the clay into stone. scoria roads look amazing after a June rainfall while the fields ae still green.

  16. Stephen in West Virginia says:
